11st 2lb

T: Jonjo & A J O’Neill

Well beaten over C&D (soft) last time; he can be effective on soft/heavy going but better ground may be preferable and he's very much of interest on his fine efforts last autumn, when winning at Kelso (3m2f, good) and finishing second of 20 at Cheltenham (3m, good to soft); on the shortlist.

T: Jonjo O’Neill

Last three wins on good ground but has won on soft and heavy; off 12 weeks, creditable fifth of ten at Newbury (3m, heavy) in February, fading only from the last; the cheekpieces he wore to good effect in the autumn return now and his yard's good record in this affords him plenty of respect.

Form & Verdict

Outran 40-1 odds when close third in competitive Pertemps Qualifier over C&D (good to soft) in January and has strong claims if judged on that evidence but both subsequent runs were underwhelming and he can't be relied upon.

Form & Verdict

Sprightly 11yo who won twice over 3m on good ground in the autumn and, following a break, completed hat-trick with 20-1 success at Perth (2m4f good to soft) last month; only another 2lb higher here and remains unexposed as a stayer; must be considered.
